"Who Would Imagine A King" by Whitney Houston

Mommies and daddys always believe 
That their little angels are special indeed 
And you could grow up to be anything 
But who would imagine a king 

A shepherd or teacher is what you could be 
Or maybe a fisherman out on the sea 
Or maybe a carpenter building things 
But who would imagine a king 

It was so clear when the wise men arrived 
And the angels were singing your name 
That the world would be different cuz you were alive 
That's what heaven stood to proclaim 

One day an angel said quietly 
That soon he would bring something special to me 
And of all those wonderful gifts he bring 

Who would imagine, who could imagine 
Who would imagine a king 
Mmm hmm
